South Africa :


During the four weeks that lasts the 2010 Football World Cup, South Africa will be under the eyes of the entire world.

Bathed by two oceans, this piece of Africa offers a fascinating variety of landscapes. An infinity pallet of beaches with turquoise blue water, of pride Zoulous villages, of shimmering vineyards, of deserts and savannahs, of rich game reserves like the Kruger National Park, without forgetting American style cities like Cap Town, Johannesburg or Durban.
